Team Australia is an exclusive club for white Anglos, preferably 
Christian, who like footy, beer and meat pies. Good sorts are allowed in 
to this blokey paradise, but not Aborigines, non-whites, communists, 
d...issenters, lefties, gays, or Muslims, and especially not women who 
think for themselves.

By creating and reinforcing the threat from the 'other,' that is those 
of us outside Team Australia, Abbott and co, like all previous 
governments, hope to bind the white Anglos to them and their capitalist 
system and divert attention from the very attacks the neoliberal 
politicians are launching on those self same white Anglos (and others) 
as workers or, like pensioners, the disabled and the sick, people in need.
